SAN DIEGO -- Law enforcement interviews with 16-year-old Hannah Anderson made it "very clear" that she is "a victim in every sense of the word," San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said. The girl is "doing as well as can be expected" for someone who was kidnapped and held for days against her will "from the time she left Boulevard to the time she was recovered in Lake Morehead," Idaho, Gore said. The girl only learned that James Lee DiMaggio, killed Saturday by law enforcement, is believed to have slain her mother and 8-year-old brother after Hannah was rescued and recovering in the hospital, Gore said.  "Everybody, the FBI, our investigators, everybody are convinced that there is no way she was anything but the worst kind of victim in this," Gore said in an interview with The Times.

Shaquille O'Neal's recovery will not be without complication. Five weeks after surgery to ease pain and restore flexibility in his right big toe, O'Neal said Tuesday that he was experiencing discomfort in the toe. Though the pain is not in the specific area of the surgery and so far hasn't kept him from his rehabilitation schedule, O'Neal left no doubt as to how it felt. "It's killing me," he said at the Lakers' practice facility in El Segundo.

In the 1980s, they clashed over the health of Santa Monica Bay--Hyperion, the giant sewage plant that discharges into the bay, and Heal the Bay, the environmental group that has pressed Hyperion to clean up its act. In recent years, the battling gave way to cooperation as Hyperion embarked on an ambitious project to intensify its treatment of ocean-bound sewage. But the harmony could soon fade.

I was elated when I discovered that much of a Sunday Calendar section was devoted not to the "latest flicks" but to (dare I utter the word?) "art" ("After the Riots: How Can the Arts Help Heal L.A.?," Sept. 6). "Hallaloo!" I shouted . . . a bit too quickly, as it turned out. Sad to say, the Calendar writers' view of artists and the role we might play in the "healing" process Los Angeles presumably is undergoing, following the April-May violence that wracked the city, differs sharply from my own.

For the first time since George Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering their son, Trayvon Martin's parents gave TV interviews Thursday morning to decry the verdict and ask the federal government to continue to investigate. Sybrina Fulton, Martin's mother, said in a "CBS This Morning" interview that she was "stunned absolutely" by the not-guilty verdict handed down Saturday by the six-woman jury in Seminole County, Fla. "I thought surely that he [Zimmerman] would be found guilty of second-degree murder, manslaughter at the least," Fulton said.

The Cambodian men gather near a parking lot hunched over chessboards, some contemplating their next move, others squeezed in closely, offering strategy. Some tease opponents or cheer on players. The ages range wildly from 18 to 70, but all share an obsession with Cambodian chess, which varies subtly from the game commonly played in the U.S. They come together every day on a sidewalk on the eastern cusp of Long Beach's Cambodia Town. The smell of tobacco hangs heavy over the group, and a small heap of sunflower seeds sits within spitting distance.

August was supposed to be Fantasia Barrino's comeback month. For three years, the "American Idol" winner had been working on her third album, recording 100 songs with a variety of producers around the country, selecting tracks that would speak to how far she'd come in her troubled life. To outsiders, everything seemed on track for the Aug. 24 debut of the album, "Back to Me. " But behind the scenes, something else was brewing that eventually led Fantasia to the sad events of Aug. 9, the day she tried to end her life by taking sleeping pills and an entire bottle of Bayer.

Around 1 a.m., the driver, Matthew Hernandez, 18, lost control of the car on Los Feliz Boulevard near Griffith Park.

Several hundred bicyclists staged a 50-mile ride Saturday from the Los Angeles Police Academy in Elysian Park to the San Fernando Valley and back to pay tribute to slain SWAT Officer Randal Simmons. Los Angeles police and sheriff's deputies and officers from Culver City, Ventura County and Pasadena took part, as did riders from a number of cycling groups including AIDS/Life Cycle and the Midnight Ridazz, which advertised the event on their websites. A brief ceremony was held at the LAPD's West Valley Station in Reseda while flags flew at half staff in honor of Simmons, who was shot and killed Feb. 7 during a standoff with a San Fernando Valley gunman who had killed three members of his family.
